Description

Bright Light Volunteer’s program in Rhodes, Greece, offers participants the opportunity to participate in a variety of service initiatives, including reforestation, community environmental clean-up projects in partnership with local Greek students, work with the Rhodes Animal Welfare Society, and even archaeological projects led by experts who will incorporate service while learning hands-on about the ancient history of the island.

The experience provides opportunities to learn about challenges the community faces and allows participants to practice implementing solutions to these challenges. Cultural activities include a trip to the Valley of the Butterflies, a relaxed visit to Lindos, classes in Greek cuisine, a night out in the medieval town, and more.

**Please Note** All BLV programs are designed for groups of at least 10 participants. Groups must be formed prior to scheduling. We do not place individuals.
